Anaktuvuk Pass is a village of around 300 in North Slope of Arctic Alaska.


Anaktuvuk Pass rests at 2,200 feet elevation on the divide between the Anaktuvuk and John Rivers in the central Brooks Range and is the last remaining settlement of the inland northern Inupiat Eskimo.

Get in[edit]

Various air services and bush pilots will fly you for a price from the large cities like Fairbanks or Barrow.

Get around[edit]

The entire village is walkable. In summer, locals get around everywhere using ATVs; in winter they use snowmobiles ("snow machines" in Alaska). And of course, nothing beats the convenience of Alaska's "bush taxi", the single engine airplane equipped with floats, skis or wheels, as the season requires.
